Out of the Box Again!

I can't even tell you how excited I am! I can't! This week's theme for Out of the Box was Portuguese food! You may assume I'm excited because I love Portuguese food, but quite to the contrary, until yesterday, I had absolutely no idea what Portuguese food was and didn't even realize it was a thing. I mean, if someone had asked me, "Is Portuguese food a thing?" I probably would have said, "I assume so," but I'd just never thought about it before.

WHAT??? PASTRIES??? These are from a Portugese bakery/cafe in Sherman Oaks called Natas Pastries.  These were delicious.

Yesterday, I didn't know what piri-piri sauce was, but today I made some, thanks to a recipe from Out of the Box! It was quite delicious as a marinade on grilled chicken, with a side of fries. There was even Portuguese cheese in the box this week! Jonathan and I are so excited. It's going to be an entire week of foods we've never eaten before.

Anyway, I just wanted to state again how awesome, time-saving, and life-enriching this service is, because they happen to need Mission: Small Business votes! Click here and you can log in with Facebook to vote for Out of the Box Collective.  (My dream is that one day everyone will get awesome food this way! Your vote can make this happen, sort of!)

Side note: I just made two cool things that I can't show you yet because they're gifts. LAME. Soon!

Love to all!
